The Saudi Arabia-born photographer Thamer Al-Tassan shows the world a whole new, beautiful way to admire the Taj Mahal in Agra, India. This self-taught, talented artist is proud of showcasing a mesmerizing series of one of the wonders of the world.

Shot in black and white, this Indian series is simultaneously a celebration of art and a nostalgic celebration of history. The opaque colors as well as the lonely subjects captured from spectacular angles add a melancholic feeling to the photos. Additionally, the long shots intensify the monumental size of one of the most intriguing and spectacular architectonic pieces ever created. From the sky to its marble tiles, the Taj Mahal becomes, in these photos, an even more complex and breathless construction.

Al-Tassam discovered his passion for photography in 2004, and since then he hasn't stopped surprising audiences with his fantastic skills and stunning projects. Stats for Wonders of the World Captures Trending: Older & Average
